New board suggestions?

Hey everyone,

Am an Advanced Boarder who rides in the Canadian Rockies. Love the Pow and Glades and need to get a new deck. Been riding an Option Redline 154 with Burton Mission Bindings for about 6 years and time to retire her.

Any suggestions or advice? I haven't followed gear at all, so I am lost. So far been looking at
Burton Supermodel
but also been rec the Jussi or T6

thoughts? For now I am going to keep my bindings unless my new boots forces me to buy bigger ones.

No beef vs directional cause of how much pow I ride, but I want something stiffer so I keep a ton of speed and not too much chatter on the ski-outs here. Again core riding will be done Pow+glades so I think FreeRide boards may be better than All-Mtn.

Thanks for the help in advance!

For a good freeride board I would recommend the Custom X if your going to go with Burton, It's a great deck that you can definitely charge with. The Supermodel is a great board, however I would definitely recommend the Custom X or T6 over it. The Jussi is more of a freestyle all mountain board, so maybe not the best for what your looking for. I would also give a good look at Never Summer. Especially the Legacy-R, it has their r.c. tech which is pretty sick. It's pretty similar to Lib's C2 rocker, but it's still different. The board has individual camber for each foot, and it is one of the most responsive boards I have ever ridden. If you just want standard camber though, they have other boards without r.c. tech. Overall, I'd say give a look at the Burton Custom X and T6, Never Summer Legacy-R and Premier F1.

I am not really concerned about which brand, I do have a bunch of other Burton gear (binding, pants etc), which is why I started there before getting instantly overwhelmed...

keeping an open mind so any ideas appreciated.
